Engleside Christian School seeks to develop its students in the fine arts as part of helping them to become well-rounded individuals. Our students have weekly music classes and they have two major open house programs throughout the year where they have the opportunity to demonstrate the skills they’ve learned. Also our 4th - 6th grades compete at a regional competition sponsored each year by the Old Dominion Association of Church Schools. Competition categories include the areas of :

  • Bible
  • Choir & Vocal Solos
  • Instrumental Music
  • Speech
  • Art
  • Spelling
  • Creative Writing
  • Academic Testing

Additionally, ECS students experience a variety of field trips as part of their regular class curriculum.

  • Some trips are made to nearby sites that complement the classroom curriculum in areas such as history and science.
  • Other trips such as visits to petting zoos and pumpkin farms are part of a fun trip designed to interact with and learn through hands on experience about the world that God has made.
  • Another common field trip focuses on ministry and community service, as the students often visit some area retirement homes to encourage the residents through songs and special performances.

ECS believes that students CAN have fun while achieving academic excellence! We seek to incorporate a balanced level of fun and enjoyment into the school in a variety of ways.

  • The ECS Family Activity Night is always a great hit!
  • Spirit Days are incorporated into several Fridays throughout the school year and often involve fun dress up opportunities, special meals, and lots of silly pictures for the yearbook.
  • Classes also enjoy a special party, project, or activity in connection with the many holidays throughout the year.
